Simulation Analysis of Double-Cropping Vegetables and Field Crops

Georgia field crop production entails agronomic considerations that lead to a typical system that includes cotton, peanuts and corn as rotation crops. Financial analysis of Georgia field crops indicates the importance of government programs to support farm income. Current legislation permits double-cropping of Georgia fruits and vegetables on base commodity program acreage with no reduction in direct and counter-cyclical payments. Fresh cabbage has seasonal markets in which Georgia is the major U.S. supplier during the April-June and October-December harvesting months. Results indicate increased net returns of $377/ac. by doublecropping cabbage in a system with field crops.
